Description of the route: Moderately demanding route. The initial ascent to the upper edge of the Plešivská planina plateau is perhaps the most difficult stretch. The route is well marked and it runs through the karstic plateau with abundant surface and underground karstic phenomena. Above all large sinkholes dispersed in meadows and forests of the plateau attract attention.
The most attractive part of the route is that between the Gerlašská skala and Veľký vrch crossroads. Partially overgrown undulated terrain though, does not offer many points for marking. This part of the route requires more attention.
